PETALING JAYA (Oct 11): The new minimum price threshold for the foreign purchase of high-rise residential property should be location-based and limited to completed units that remain unsold for at least a year, suggested Perbadanan PR1MA Malaysia chairman Tan Sri Eddy Chen.

“The revision is a good move, the only thing is that it has to be location-based. Because in some states such as Kelantan, Terengganu and Perak, a lot of the properties are below RM600,000, which means there are not many choices for foreign buyers to acquire,” said Chen, who is also the managing director of MKH Bhd. —
